Silsoe Pre-School Fundraising

 

Silsoe Pre-School is a non profit making organisation providing early years education for children aged 2 years and 6 months to 5 years.

 

As a registered charity (Registered Charity Number 1029828) we regularly try to raise money to fund new play equipment and learning resources for our Pre-School.

 

Here are some examples of some of the things we’ve been able to do as a result of our fundraising efforts:

  • We have refurbished our book zone & quiet corner
  • We spent £400 on new books for our library with monies raised from a sponsored listen 
  • We have purchased new puzzles, games and toys for indoor play 
  • By collecting Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers we were able to buy some new scooters & skipping ropes for outdoor play
  • We have purchased a small den to use as a communication friendly space and encourage speech and language development
  • We took all of the children on an outing to Mead Open Farm
  • We’ve also raised money for other charities which benefit children including Barnardo’s, Save the Children Xmas Jumper appeal, BBC Children and Need,  Jeans for Genes and Red Nose Day.

There are a number of ways that you can help:

  • Make free cash donations to our Pre-School by doing your online shopping through www.thegivingmachine.co.uk  Over 400 shops give cash donations to charities like ours. Simply join and choose to support Silsoe Pre-School – it only takes a few minutes!
  • By attending and supporting our fundraising events throughout the year. This is by far our most important and successful way of raising funds and you can help by giving up your time to help on the day and/or donating raffle prizes and cakes to sell.
  • Join our Committee to help with fundraising activities.
  • Buy your arts and crafts materials at www.yellowmoon.co.uk and quote SSI1133. The Pre-School can get up to 20% cash back!
  • Purchase your child’s Pre-School photograph from Tempest photographers; Pre-School receives a small amount of commission from all monies taken.
